Have seen a couple of questions which were kind of related but wondered if anyone agreed that it would be nice to have a user friendly second level product grouping/analysis grouping?
I know you could set this up with custom reporting but think this is a valuable tool that is missing with Samba.
Can you explain where you want that to be and what it is? Is that a printout?
I think it could be useful on a few levels if included in the mapping options for rules etc and tags for constraints etc as well as additional reporting peramiter.
At first I think about reporting (printout) but then potential uses with API integration where breakdown doesn’t need to be so specific.
I know we try not to compare to other POS systems but most that I have used have used have at least two levels for reporting/summary - a departmental (product group) and an analysis level (wet/dry/accommodation etc) to simplify general reporting whilst still giving functionality to see more retailed report also.
The analysis level grouping I think should not be set on a product level it should be ‘mapped’ against product groups as a summary type function.
I’m sorry but I’m having a hard time understanding what your getting at. What would this solve?
I mean why would you map a rule to a product analysis?
Sorry, I didn’t word that right the reporting side was the main concern.
I still don’t understand what your trying to achieve or how this would work.
That your report would list sales by product group at it does but also by analysis group.
I think that this is a fairly common method for reporting.
I dont think that it is something that should have to be configured within a custom report.
I would rather just do a report vs configuring products like that. Sounds like a lot of busy work for something I can do in 5 seconds with a report.
your probably right.
Think my thought are coming back to having manager creating products rather than owner/admin and possibility of creating new product group which is not set in the report…
